Other tracking technologies

We and our third party partners may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons, pixels (or “clear gifs”) and other tracking technologies. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Websites or, in the case of web beacons, opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to serve targeted advertisements to you and others like you, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of marketing campaigns. While you may not have the ability to specifically reject or disable these tracking technologies, in many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly; accordingly, in those instances, declining cookies will impair functioning of these technologies.

Targeted online advertising

We have engaged one or more third party service providers to track and analyse both individualized usage and volume statistical information from interactions with our Websites. We also partner with one or more third parties (such as advertisers and ad networks) to display advertising on our Websites and/or to manage and serve advertising on other sites.

These third parties use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags and similar tracking technologies to collect and use certain information about your online activities, either on our Websites and/or other sites or mobile apps, to infer your interests and deliver you targeted advertisements that are more tailored to you based on your browsing activities and inferred interests (“Interest Based Advertising”). For more information about this practice, click here: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.

Our third party service providers may also use cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to our Websites and/or other sites to measure and track the effectiveness of advertisements and our online marketing activities (for example, by collecting data on how many times you click on one of our ads). The information collected by these third parties does not include personal information that enables you to be specifically identified (e.g. by reference to your name or email address).

Cookies served through the Services

User email campaigns

We automatically place single pixel gifs, also known as web beacons, in every email sent by our users. These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable us and our users to recognize when their subscribers have opened an email or clicked certain links. These technologies record each subscribers email address,

IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. We use this data to create reports for our users about how an email campaign performed and what actions subscribers took.

User sites

If a user elects to use certain MailChimp add-ons or features, the use of those may permit or require additional cookies or tracking technologies to be employed. If a user connects his or her website or e-commerce store (in each case, a “Site”) to a MailChimp account, MailChimp installs a JavaScript tracking snippet (“Snippet”) on that user’s Site. This Snippet will allow cookies, pixels, and other technologies to be set on that user’s Site to facilitate the use of certain automations, features and functionality offered by MailChimp through the Services. The specific cookies, pixels, or other technologies that will be set on a user’s Site depend on the particular add-ons or features that the user chooses to use as part of the Services. Subscribers should therefore review the relevant user’s privacy notice and cookie disclosures for further information about the specific types of cookies and other tracking technologies used on the Site. These optional add-ons and features include:

Google remarketing ads: Our Google remarketing ads feature (also known as web retargeting ads) allows our users to create and manage advertisements on the Google Display Network. When a user elects to use this feature, MailChimp installs a Google tracking pixel on that user’s Site through the Snippet. The Snippet also allows that user’s Site to set a MailChimp cookie that will recognize Site visitors via ads placed with the Google remarketing ads feature. These technologies facilitate the placement of advertising campaigns on the Google Display Network and enable MailChimp to provide reporting to our users about the performance of these advertising campaigns. To refuse these cookies, please follow the instructions below under the heading “How can I control cookies?” Alternatively, please click on the relevant opt-out link here: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin

Facebook ads: Our Facebook ads feature allows our users to display ads to their subscribers and others within the Facebook platform. When a user elects to use this feature, MailChimp installs a Facebook tracking pixel on that user’s Site through the Snippet. The Snippet also allows that user’s Site to set a MailChimp cookie that will recognize Site visitors via ads placed with the Facebook ads feature. These tracking technologies facilitate the placement of advertising campaigns on the Facebook platform and enable MailChimp to provide reporting to our users about the performance of these advertising campaigns. Facebook does not provide an opt-out link for its cookies. For more information about Facebook cookies, please click here: https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies/ To refuse these cookies, please follow the instructions below under the heading “How can I control cookies?”

Product retargeting emails: Our product retargeting emails feature allows our users to promote new items or best sellers to their subscribers. When a subscriber clicks a link within a product retargeting email, the user’s Site drops a MailChimp cookie on that subscriber’s device that is placed through the Snippet. This cookie allows MailChimp to track attribution rates and browser activity and provide reporting to the user regarding the success of their product retargeting emails. To refuse these cookies, please follow the instructions below under the heading “How can I control cookies?”
